gun violence prevention task force in the house. this group was set up by nancy pelosi last month to be the voice of congressional democrats on reform. and it tells you something about the diversity of the democratic party on this issue, right, to be able to have nancy pelosi, who has the exact position on guns that you think she has, to have a nancy pelosi drafting leadership help on this issue from, among others, john dingell, a former board member of the nra, a former a-plus rated nra legislator. but for all of congressman dingell's nra bona fides, if you think that is the only thing worth knowing about him, you are missing a big part of the picture. last month, congressman dingell's wife, debbie dingell published a very personal op-ed in the "washington post." "when i was about to start eighth grade, my father almost shot my mother. it was another of their many ugly fights. i got between them literally and tried to grab the gun. i will never forget that night. the shouting. the fear. the raw fear that we would all die, my brother and sisters along with my parents. my calling f

hostage. that's senate leader harry reid there. house minority leader nancy pelosi rejected the plan. did the republicans make a real effort here or was this a gimmick as nancy pelosi said? >> the most important thing for republicans is they are re-ordering the three fiscal conflicts that the country has ahead. the three conflicts are are the sequestration and the deep cuts to domestic and military spending and the end of the funding of the government that could result in a govern shutdown and the sent ceiling fight and the debt ceiling fight has potentially the worst consequences for the economy. so the republicans thought instead of taking the debt ceiling fight first and potentially doing real harm, let's move it to the end of the first of three standoffs. >> and sequestration, of course, also a major issue. do republicans think they can win on -- on major cuts to domestic and military spending? >> probably not. i don't think they have a lot of betting power here at all. the debt ceiling was the biggest bargaining chip that they had and they just moved it to basically a totally differe

nancy pelosi's speakership. they're playing -- it's the long play. >> i have a question for you. what do you think the polls would have shown before "madd" was organized to have a campaign against drunk driving about whether you could have an open container in your car or whether it's wise to drive after having a couple shooters in a bar. or whether you're going somewhere and somebody in the back seat has a six-pack. what do you think the polls would say about that? >> all of that matters. and i think what the -- undertone of what the president was saying, he has to marshal this kind of cultural battle. it's not automatic. we can sit here in midtown manhattan where everybody would agree with us. but outside of here, not everybody does. in fact, there is an amazing statistic that shows that 23% of people in our poll call the availability of guns as the cause of gun violence compared with 37% who pointed to parenting and 37% who talked about public culture. >> but rick, i've got to bring this up too. i love that you're bringing up counterintuitive polls. but you're saying polls show that 5

: you're right to call it a gimmick, and i've never heard you agree with nancy pelosi. >> tucker: it's a wonderful gimmick, i endorse, why not? why are we paying these people if they're not writing budgets. >> clayton: they can't cash a paycheck unless they do their job. number one, they don't know if it's constitutional, you stop congress getting paid as a result of it. the second part, it could be a gimmick and we'll have to relitigate this in three months ago frustrates american businesses and they don't know what to do. >> alisyn: will the national nightmare ever stop? >> you would think they'd be thinking beyond the next quarter. we just said our debt rating downgraded, right? >> and here is a new fox news channel poll. and the question was, is government spending managed carefully or out of control? hmmm, what do you think people said mostly? >> i would love to know the 11%, who are you. >> alisyn: 83% of people think it's out of control and that obviously is up from two years ago, and up from three years ago, and on and on. >> clayton: really, who are the 11%? please, if you a
